David Murphy is RTÉ Business Correspondent and played a major role in the station’s coverage of the Irish economic disasters of the 2008–2012 period. Together with his wife, the journalist Martina Devlin, he wrote one of the best exposés of the Irish financial meltdown, Banksters. David was a participant in the first Hinterland Debate last year when our panel explored the implications of Brexit. Now that we are a year closer to the departure of the UK (including Northern Ireland) David looks at what Irish businesses and the Irish government need to be doing. In conversation with Myles Dungan.
